Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

The "on" light is always green, even if turned off. Why?

When turned on, the activation light is green. When it is off, that same light used to turn red. But lately it has turned into a lime color and some discs have ejected slower. Does anyone have any info on this? Thanks.

It occurs when your wii in the Standby, but WiiConnect24 is enabled with Standby Connection is enabled. the content can also be received when the Wii is left in standby mode.

WiiConnect24 can be turned on or off via the setup setting. While the console is in standby, the power LED indicates the current status of the standby connection,

  • Red indicating Standby - wiiConnect is off,
  • Yellow indicating Standby - Connect mode is on. If you hold the power button for 3-4 seconds, the Wii goes into standby mode with Standby Connect off. and WiiConnect24 will not operate until the console is turned on.

How do i turn off my built in camera on my macbook?

Exit any programs using the iSight camera to turn it off. Programs like Photo Booth and some VOIP software will automatically turn the camera on when started. Some programs, like iChat, will turn the camera off when the active window is closed, even if the program is still running. The green LED light next to the iSight lens will turn off when not in use to indicate it has been disabled.

When the cover is closed the amber light will not go out. As a result the printr will not work. If I push down on the cover very hard the light will turn green and the printer will function. ...

When the cover is open, there should be a protrusion on the upper left corner (plunger) that will activate the switch in the bottom half of the printer when it is closed. The plunger is probaby bent or partially broken since you have to press hard on the cover to activate the switch. If the plunger appears not to be damaged, then the switch itself maybe the issue. Take a toothpick or straightened gem clip to activate the switch. The light should turn green when you activate the switch. If you want to manually activate the switch, trim a toothpick or gem click to wedge the switch or you can try to repair the plunger by removing the broken remnant and drilling a hole (with a small craft drill) and use a toothpick (preferably plastic) to glue into place (you may have to use two).

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.

I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

Caroline, i am sorry to hear you troubles, and i don`t have any good news for you, the flashing of the power light indicates a fault and its more than just replacing a fuse, there are many protection circuits in your TV to prevent an even more costly repair and one of them is not happy. sorry
